Supernova is a single origin certified Rain Forrest Alliance blend from Brazil. Cupping notes: Aromas of buttery toast with a side of hot chocolate while sitting in your favorite old leather recliner. Flavors of dark chocolate truffle with a creamy caramel center and blackberry sauce. Makes a stellar espresso on its own or can be used as the base for making your own espresso blend. This low acid coffee is excellent for all brew methods. It’s a personal favorite. If there’s any coffee that we would consider our house blend this would be it. Carlos has been roasting coffee from this farm since 2009.
